Chiropractic Treatment for Fatigue in Lakewood, CO
Chiropractic views fatigue as a sign of a body out of balance. We categorize fatigue as either:
- Fatigue caused by deficiency
- Fatigue caused by overstimulation
The more common way to think of fatigue caused by deficiency is classic fatigue. This is the fatigue that results from burnout on the job, not eating properly, a low-performing nervous system, and sleep deprivation. At Palmercare, we treat fatigue caused by deficiency with chiropractic adjustments that restore proper nervous system function and by helping patients implement lifestyle changes that improve their health.
Fatigue caused by overstimulation is characterized by feeling exhausted, but also being unable to fall asleep, often because your mind is racing. This is a sign of chronic, low-level stress, which can push your body into something called the sympathetic state.
Another name for the sympathetic state is fight-or-flight mode. In this state, the body is flooded with the stress hormone cortisol and the adrenals are depleted. The treatment for fatigue caused by overstimulation begins with supporting the nervous system through spinal adjustments. Next, we balance your hormones and help you make important lifestyle changes to reduce your levels of stress.
